Living Smart Glossies touring the libraries
  • Wednesday 25 August 2010

Over the next eight weeks, a series of posters showcasing the winners of the Sunshine Coast Council’s 2010 Living Smart Glossies Awards will be touring the region’s libraries.

Council’s Project Manager of Environment Initiatives Ben McMullen, said that displaying the posters in the libraries is a great way to share knowledge and assist others to live smart sustainably.

“The posters include lots of pictures, diagrams and explanations of the methods used for each award entrant,” Mr McMullen said.

“These posters also show the final results of the projects and they are inspiring!

“It’s good to know that you can build an environmentally friendly and sustainable house and it still looks great!

“So it’s definitely worth a trip down to the local library for a look.”
